Partial Abstract: The result s of a series of consolidated-undrained (CU) triaxial compression tests performed on normally consolidated and overconsolidated specimens of two clays consolidated both isotropically (ICU tests) and anisotropically (ACU tests) are presented and analyzed in this report. The specimens were trimmed from samples of Vicksburg Buckshot clay (LL = 57) and a clay from the East Atchafalaya Basin Protection Levee (EABPL) project area (LL= 79), both of which had been consolidated from a slurry in large-diameter consolidometers under a maximum vertical consolidation pressure of 3.0 kg/cm².
